Hello, Norway! Two talks in Oslo next week

By Carl Zimmer | August 23, 2012 9:56 am

Next Friday (August 31) I have the honor of taking part in the Kristine Bonnevie Lecture, an annual lecture held at the University of Oslo to honor the first female professor in Norway. I’ll be speaking along with Cori Bargmann of Rockefeller University, who has done hugely important research on the links between the anatomy of the brain and how animals behave. Details are here.

On Saturday (September 1) I’ll be giving a public lecture about A Planet of Viruses at Oslo’s House of Literature (Litteraturhuset). Details are here.

If there are any Loom-readers in Norway (perhaps a few?), I hope to see you in Oslo.

    Oh yes! We will see you! Hopefully, we’ll be able to lure you to the local skeptics in the pub for a treat as well!

    I’ll certainly come see you at the Kristine Bonnevie Lecture, but on Saturday I’m sadly otherwise occupied.
